Drivers ignoring road signs should be penalized: Moore

Yellow lines and double lanes are there for a reason but are always ignored by motorists, causing traffic and frustration.
Fiji Roads Authority Chief Executive Jonathan Moore says parking on yellow lines and not following the road code creates traffic congestion on our roads during peak hours and causes risks to pedestrians.
Moore says drivers must adhere to road signs displayed and not illegally park anywhere.
“What I see particularly is when you come to T junction where you turn left or right. Ideally, the left line goes left and the right line goes right. If somebody parking in the left line it causes massive traffic. A T junction is the easiest congestion saver until someone parks there.”
Moore is advising motorists not to park cars illegally as fines can be imposed on them by LTA.
